The Houston Gaymers, (one of the communities fastest growing LGBT+ organizations) are in a race and they plan to win it!
Considered the top organization, and the only LGBT+ out of the four competing at OKRA Charity Saloon to take home the bar’s monthly profit.
What’s OKRA you ask? OKRA is made up of a group of restaurant and bar owners in Houston that stand for Organized Kollaboration on Restaurant Affairs. The group is a charitable organization with very specific views on how the industry should operate and engage local communities.
Houston Gaymers are inviting the Greater Houston LGBT+ Community and Organizations, for a gathering at OKRA Charity Saloon this Saturday, January 30th, starting at 4:00 pm!
If the Houston Gaymers win they will use the winnings to keep events free for its nearly 2,000 person membership, as well as to realize its new charity initiative, ‘Project Blue Shell’. This initiative hopes to put games in the hands of sick and bedridden kids at local hospitals (starting at Texas Children’s Hospital) to aid them in their healing and give them comfort in a difficult time.
How does OKRA work?
- Buy any bar item (Drinks, food, and soda are all valid!)
- Receive a ticket from the bartender with your item
- Drop your ticket into the charity bucket of your choice
- The charity with the most votes at the end of the month wins the bars profits!!
As a bonus, the Houston Gaymers will be offering the first drink FREE to the FIRST 50 attendees! How cool is that? Just find a ‘Gaymer’ in their flashing blue wristband and they’ll get you set up!
Happy Hour runs 4:00PM – 6:30PM, with $3 drafts, $4 wells, and 1/2 price wine by the glass!
